3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled as Emelisse 2.5 from de Molen Beershop, BB 12 2014, large sample, served in a shaker. Almost clear golden color, short lasting frothy off-white head. Lovely piney hops in the aroma, grapefruit, slight malty. Quite bitter in taste, some caramel malty body. Relative medium bodied for such a low ABV, low carbonation. Finishes with quite astringent bitterness, so not as easy to drink and sessionable as you would expect. Still very nice low alcohol stuff.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cl bottle
Appearance: Hazy dark orange, with a small head with a few minor lacing spots.Suprisingly as you start drinking it will leave much more thi lacing.
Aroma: loral hops, pines, citrus, grass
Taste: The taste is above moderate bitter and with a big hoppyness hoppiness, slight grain malty backbone. . bGood bitterness, light sweetness
Thin body(allthough thicker as most low alcohol beers), soft carbonation,
Quite a good try of Emelisse and while the aftertaste is flat,, this is still a ok brew and for a beer with a abv below 3% exceptional.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. The aroma has tropical fruits, citrus, some union, light malts there. Clear, golden coloured with a white head. The taste is moderate bitter and has big hoppiness, slight grainy/honey malty backbone. Relative speaking still a pretty decent body, but still just not enough to back up the nice big hoppiness. For me that’s still the biggest problem with these kind of beers. All nice tries, but so far from being there. This is a pretty good try nevertheless.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber with white foam head. Aroma is nice hoppy. Taste is decent bitter, nice surprise for a beer with that little alcohol, proof one does not imply the other. (Velp 201406)

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour@FdB Köln 2014. Pours a brackish deep amber. Nice citrus, pine and mango aromas that surprisingly hold up well in taste, making this very enjoyable, apart from being quite light and obviously sessionable. Good malt body and overall presence of all wet hops. Maybe missed a bit of definition/focus to center taste, but given its style, probably top notch./Almost an inversion of Brewdog’s Nanny State, with reticent aromas and more substance in taste and body here, less perfume and soap.
